Today's Opinions

  • Age should not impact importance of teams

    The sports page for the Los Alamos Monitor has all the high school sports and stats but usually doesn’t have the middle school sports. 

    Why is that? Just because we are a few years younger doesn’t mean our teams are any less important. 

  • Marketing for the times

    Many business owners remain unsure how to market their companies online, even though they know that today’s consumers use the Internet to research products and decide what and where to buy. 

  • Emotion trumps sense

    We need a new State Question. Instead of, “Red or Green?” it should be, “How’re we gonna pay for that?”

  • Whenever the economy tanks, folks inevitably rein in spending

     

       

    So many expenses, so few dollars saved. That’s the dilemma faced by millions of Americans – everyone from struggling college students to young families saving for a down payment to baby boomers approaching retirement.

    Under reservoir

    Word on the street says that the Army Corps of Engineers has discovered a wetland in the bottom of the Los Alamos Reservoir. 

    Now the wetland must be created elsewhere. 

  • Joe Sixpacks scarce around here

    Dear Mr. Todd:  You haven’t lived here very long have you? I take this tack rather than accuse you of not being very observant — of the relatively small population of “Joe Sixpacks” here as opposed to the overwhelmingly large number of hyperanalytic citizens.
    “The ardor for analysis” that you deride pervades “every nook and cranny” of our county government as an accurate and democratic reflection of the main character of our citizenry.

  • More money, less result

    During her campaign, Gov. Susana Martinez said that she would not cut education. Based on revised budget numbers that were released immediately after she was elected, that went out the window. Now, Martinez is proposing very modest cuts of 1.5 percent for K-12.

  • Let the good times roll

    We’re out of the woods. We’re out of the dark. We’re into the light.
    Nope, we’re not in Kansas anymore. However, there is a Wizard of Oz-like feel to remarks made by Mark C. Snead, an energy economist from the Denver office of our Federal Reserve Bank.
    Speaking to the CFA Society of New Mexico, Snead reportedly said New Mexico and other oil and gas producing states were on the verge of good times.
